I broke down and brought our senior dog to the vet.
Today I took our elderly dog to the vet. Although his balance was getting better, he still wasn't himself. I hated watching him get weaker and weaker from lack of nutrition. Although the vet couldn't' say for certain, it would appear that he is suffering from Idiopathic Peripheral Vestibular Disease, which is also referred to as Old Dog Vestibular Syndrome. I declined to have blood work taken, but did agree to a round of antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory injection and also another medication to help with nausea. I also purchased 12 cans of the high caloric prescription diet. $170 later, hopefully this will do the trick and get this old boy back to feeling better.
While this will hurt our debt snowball, I feel it had to be done. On the bright side, we did/do have a snowball. The bill was paid for in cash (well, debit) so it also won't effect our emergency fund. With the unknown of our pending taxes, I've been holding off on sending too much extra to our debt. And so, our journey continues.
